New Home for Bonsai History

Post  Robert J. Baran on Fri Feb 26, 2016 3:22 pm

www.magiminiland.org is the new home for my 30 years' worth of research into and archiving of the history of bonsai and the related arts – what I've long called Magical Miniature Landscapes.  I am still fine-tuning the transfer and cleaning up of old links.  But you will find yourself amazed, entertained and even educated going through the most comprehensive source of information worldwide in any language or medium regarding our global gardening interest.  Please visit and look around.  Most search engines' general bonsai history links starting with www.phoenixbonsai.com/ will still work now using www.magiminiland.org/ .

Fear not, I am continuing my researches and adding in many more notes already gathered but not yet published on this site.  And, again, I offer an open invitation to any and all clubs, artists, teachers, etc. to contact me with possible local additions to this archive.  It is for us now and for all in the future who are interested in what we do/did.  Thank-you, my friends.

You are very welcome. What we -- bonsai enthusiasts as a whole -- need to do is to make more video interviews of our teachers: their backgrounds and first involvements with this hobby/art, early club involvement and shows, demonstrations and workshops, trips abroad they've made or visiting teachers they studied under, what they've had to unlearn technique-wise, how they see the local and regional presentations of bonsai change through the years, their favorite old trees with background stories, what they wish their students to especially remember, where they see their clubs and the interest going in the future. (And www.magiminiland.org would be more than happy to archive these and much more at no cost to you. Web space is very low-priced : let us use it.)
